. in my case they told me i couldn't return. there were four jewish boys in my cla and within two years we were gone. >> did you suspect something or thought you didn't make the grade? >> no, i didn't. i thought i was doing okay and no one had ever called me in to an office. the dean didn't call me. none of the instructors took me to the side. i've carved all my teeth. they never -- i mean you should have seen -- they'd break your teeth and throw them out the window. i didn't have a rough time. it was a shock, but when i got home, the worst thing was having to tell my parents. >> emory apologized to you and other jewish students. it discriminated against them decades ago. listen to the apology. >> i am sorry, we are sorry. >> how do you feel about it? >> i feel great. emory has been incredible. they really have. i showed -- i spent a long time, maybe four years getting all my documentation. i'm an apple person so i learned how to make movies, imovies in my lessons down there. i came up with a movie and took it to emory and they were shocked. they really were and they said this is not emory
